GBM - falls

My husband has a GBM and over the last couple of days he has had a few falls. This has happened a couple of times before, but I'm struggling to lift him on my own now because he is less able to help. Any suggestions (other than of course trying to make sure he doesn't fall, which is a lot harder than it should be). Thanks

PS previous bouts of falling he responded well to the dex, and we have increased the dose over the last two days.

Re: GBM - falls

When my husband runs into strife, I contact the neuro oncology nurse practitioner. She liaises with the relevant consultant and we're advised of the next step. I'd certainly contact one of your husband's neuro surgical/oncolgy team to advise them of his decline.
